4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

I've only stayed there for one night but i really liked it. There's free parking and the hostel is very well located and easy to find. The room was nice but very simple. The bed was comfortable and there was a sink and lockers in the room. Its was all fairly clean and the lounge area was quite nice too.
The staff was also nice and very helpful. They explain everything well so you don't get lost around Dresden!

I would go back there anytime so yes i would recommend it to everybody!

The hostel is located very close to the Neustadt train station, there are signs on the road, so it's very easy to find. The staff were really helpfull, not only about the stay in the hostel but also, tell you important things about the city and mark them on the map(that's a standard procedure i guess, they do that even before you ask). There is a common room and a kitchen, which are nicely designed and decorated. The hostel overall is very clean and everything was much better than i would expect from a hostel at that price =)

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

I only stayed one night in Kangaroo Stop but I really enjoyed it. The staff were very helpful, they gave me a map of Dresden when I arrived. The bathrooms were also clean and there was plenty of hot water. The mixed-bed room was very nice, clean, and spacious. The community kitchen is well stocked with facilities, and there's free food left over by the other dormers. I helped myself to some butter and cheese :) For those who would like to eat buffet for breakfast, it's also available for around 5 euros. You have to pay for the linen though, which sucks if you're only staying one night, but overall, I would recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Dorm rooms are good; you can borrow a padlock for the locker from the reception area.

Less than 5 min walk from Dresden Neustadt station. There are signs along the way directing you to the hostel, which was much appreciated!! Very close to, but not actually within, nightlife area of Neustadt, so a good option if you want to go out at night but have a nice quiet sleep when you get back.

Very very clean hostel. Bathrooms spotless. Linen is a few extra euros, which always annoys me. Why not just build it into the price of the bed?

I booked through hostelworld, which meant I got free wifi. They told me not to tell other guests, because those who had not booked through hostelworld did not get free wifi. I think this offer only applies in off-peak season.

Giant lockers in dorm room, which was great. Lower bunk quite cramped and small.

Staff friendly and helpful.

The main thing that disappointed me was the lack of a social atmosphere. Don't know if this is just because it's off-peak at the moment. The only other guests I really saw around were a group of about 6 loud, obnoxious Americans, who barely even ackowledged me. Would have been nice to meet some other travellers.
